Corporate contribution bill is dead
by Larry Geller
More later, but just to note that HB215, the bill that would have raised limits on corporate contributions from their treasuries to $50,000, was recommitted to the Finance Committee this afternoon from the floor of the House. Normally that means it won’t cross over, and so is dead. The reason given was technical problems with the bill.
Strings can be pulled, though, and exceptions made. Also, the language from this bill can be included in another, as long as the title is similar.
I don’t think the legislature would be too happy to give up on this, so stay tuned.
